Intricate glass front doors, impressive homemade wreaths, and blossoming flowers are just a few elements of an entryway that can pack a stylish punch. Whether you’ve opted for all three of these trends or kept it simple, your entryway serves as a first impression of your home. It’s a space where family, friends, and strangers will get a quick glimpse into your home’s style. That’s why an entryway is such a substantial part of a stylish home, and why it’s a focus for many of today’s top designers.
We love spicing up an entryway with a cute welcome mat to give it a touch of personality. Whether you’re looking for bright colors, neutral tones, or something in between, a welcome mat could be the perfect addition. Layer it with another rug below, keep it sweet and simple by itself, or add décor like planter pots and lanterns for a complete, accessorized look.
There are tons of ways to make your entryway look polished, and with our Welcome-A-Cure initiative, there’s even more reason to choose a fun welcome mat this season. Not only will your entryway look amazing, but you’ll also be supporting breast cancer research with the purchase of a welcome mat. 25% of the purchase price of every welcome mat purchase is donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation®, and so far, the campaign has helped fund over 9,100 hours of research.
This summer, we challenged a few of our influencers to create a porch look that captures the beauty and warmth of the season. Each influencer used the mat in their own unique way, and every entryway has its own personality. Check out their designs below and use them for inspiration when creating a front porch design that fits your style!
Jaclyn | One Thousand Oaks Home Décor
This simple white entryway with brick is enlivened by all the elements on the porch that Jaclyn placed together. Using a rug from our Asian collection, she paired twine covered bottles, a wooden egg crate, and glass elements to tie the beachy entryway together beautifully. With the addition of greenery, this entryway is a natural nod to the brightness and light of Earth’s elements – land and sea.
Rachel | Shades of Blue Interiors
Brightening the front area with a layered-look and a yellow rug, Rachel from Shades of Blue Interiors opted for our simple, but effective, “hello” mat from our Scandinavian collection. The yellow accent on the top mat does an excellent job of bringing out the brightness of the flowers potted nearby, while the muted gray door complements all of the decor flawlessly.
Lydia | Chic and Modish Blog
Gray interior tile and a deep green snake plant appear to be the perfect pieces to truly balance and harmonize our “hello,” welcome mat from the Scandinavian collection. Clean, crisp, and elegant, this entryway doesn’t need additional décor to complete the look thanks to its tasteful simplicity.
